Happy 3 Months Lucy


Dear Lucy,


     Today my dear you are three months old! It has been such a fun month but also a very busy month, it really did fly by! You have changed so much this month and are truly now a baby instead of a newborn.


Lucy you are one of the happy babies I have ever seen. If you are awake you are mostly likely smiling or laughing. This month we learned that you are very ticklish and let out big belly laughs, you melt us with how adorable your laugh is. You absolutely love your Dada and cannot look at him without a huge grin on your face!


You are sleeping like a rock star! You love your sleep. You take one very short, usually 20 minute nap in the morning and then a solid 2.5-3 hour nap in the afternoon. You go to bed around 8, I dream feed you at 11 and you wake at 7, yeah like I said you are a rock star! Depending on the night I have to give you a paci to soothe you back to sleep; sometimes it is just twice a night other nights it can be a few times an hour. We swaddle you for your long nap and night time.


Girl you are one social butterfly and chatty girl! You cannot be around other people without being awake, even if it is naptime. When we go out shopping you are awake the entire time. When Mama is talking with other ladies you are always in on the conversation. On Christmas Eve you had the best little conversation with your Aunt Kerri, it was too cute.


You are 12.6 pounds (home scale, no appointment this month), wear a size 1 diaper, size 0-3 and a few 3-6 months clothes.  You have almost doubled your birth weight (6 pounds 10 ounces at birth and 12.6 pounds now). You LOVE to eat, hence those adorable, kissable cheeks your have acquired.


You have rolled over once, maybe twice in the last month but are not doing it often. I can honestly say it is probably my fault. Knowing you will be my last baby (most likely) I want to keep you a baby as long as possible and just like to hold and snuggle you most of the time. You love your jungle activity mat and stuffed moose that hangs on it. You spend about 30 minutes every morning under the gym while I make and eat breakfast. You now love your swing and tend to fall asleep for both your long nap and night time in it with the white noise on. You LOVE watching Liam. You following him (with your eyes) room all day all day just watching what he is doing. When he comes to show you something, most likely a car or truck, you light up that he has acknowledged you.

Love you always,


Look at how you’ve grown (already!)

She has grown so much! She definitely looks more like a baby now instead of a newborn. And is it just me, or does she look a lot like her pretty mamma?
